When you visit us one of the best parts of your trip will be the time you spend on the farm, with our endearing farm animals and their adorable quirks!
Our Llamas were born in 2010, Beltie, the male, wears a head collar and is slightly bigger than his female mate, Ischa. They stay out in the field during the summer months but you may find the field empty due to the weather or the field needing to be rested after they’ve eaten all the grass. They’re great friends (although Beltie is greedy and will eat Ischa’s food given half the chance) and communicate by humming.
Our curly haired Managalitsa sow is a breed that originates in Hungary with a name that means ‘hog with a lot of lard’. Mango is one of our top breeding pigs and has had four litters to date. Her breeding partner is Braveheart, a Duroc Boar from Askrigg. Mango is an excellent mother and has produced dozens of hardy and very noisy piglets.
Our Kune Kune pigs (Pronounced Cooney Cooney) are siblings, born in December 2011 and are much loved pets by all at Berry’s. The breed originates in New Zeland and the word Kune Kune means round and fat in Mauri. They are popular participants of Berry’s farm tours, leading the way on animal walks, and they like a good scratch behind the ears from visitors. If you visit us late afternoon, you probably hear them hollering for their tea!
Charlie is our Golden Partridge Brahma Cockerel, this splendid breed is often called the ‘King of Chicken Breeds’. Charlie is a very well-behaved cockerel, the breed is naturally quiet and Charlie doesn’t crow very loudly at all. He only has one wife at the moment but we are planning to increase the family with a batch of chicks due to hatch this Easter.
Doris is our famous pygmy goat; she is small but very feisty. She can be very naughty and has to be kept on a lead during our Farm tours. She has just visited her husband, Luxor, and we are hoping for a playmate for her son, Black Adder.
Black Adder is Doris' son, born August 2016. Like all Pygmy Goats he has learnt that stone walls are to be climbed and fences are for going under. He is definitley a character, just like his mum!
Elspeth is our Manx Loaghtan Sheep, one of the oldest and most striking breeds of sheep in the UK. Elspeth is very friendly, well behaved and, most importantly, leader of the ‘Team’. When out of the pen, she is usually seen following shortly behind Bridget, Berry’s human Team leader. Elspeth was Bridget’s first pet lamb.
Rolo is our Mini Shetland Pony, he is a very good-natured Shetland pony who loves to eat. He enjoys being brushed on farm toursrm tours and gives the occasional pony ride.
Harry is our pet ‘lamb’ although he is now larger than Rolo the mini Shetland pony. He was born in 2014 and is a Texel cross, he can be seen wearing a headcollar and we are hoping he will pull a cart.
Our resident Highland Cows are all aged around 11 years old and arrived at Berry’s in November 2015 with calves that have now been weaned. Our black Highland Cow welcomed a calf in March 2016. The calves that were born in late 2015 have just had their horns removed.
These are our South Devon Cattle, they supply Berry’s with beef for the butcher’s counter and the café. They can be found on our grassy fields where they like to graze with their calves.
Flopsey and Lopsey are brothers and are two of Berry’s newest residents. They are a cross breed between Lion Lop Rabbits and the Mini Lop. They have very floppy ears and blue/grey eyes. Flopsey and Lopsey are already firm favourites with visitors on our farm tour and love to be cuddled.
